Prevent Cancer  by Detoxing your Food and your Life

Today’s Natural Cures blog Carnival theme is Cancer Prevention. What are your strategies for avoiding a cancer diagnosis?  What follows are mine.

When I first became a member of Weston A. Price Foundation, I learned that my Dad’s cancer had resurfaced, this time on his kidney. His cancer doctors had given him no guidance on nutrition, and they had been treating him for 3 years. So, I dug into the Westonaprice.org website, and researched cancer alternatives and began a nutritional intervention. My Dad has now passed away, but my husband and I still follow this cancer prevention “protocol”.

1. Eat Nutrient Dense Foods from Pasture Raised livestock-According to Patrick Quillan, author of Beating Cancer with nutrition, the fatty acid CLA, found in the meat of ruminant animals is a major cancer fighter. Contact your local Weston A. Price volunteer chapter leader for a source of grass-fed meat near you.

2. Follow a low-glycemic dietary strategy, avoid refined carbohydrates, starchy foods and white sugar. Learn more about this from the South Beach Diet by preventative cardiologist, Dr. Arthur Agatston.

3. Clear your environment of toxic chemicals. Toxins compromise your immune system and make it harder for your body to defend itself from free radicals and errant cells.

4. Follow the Weston A. Price Foundation dietary guidelines. Avoid processed foods and foods with chemical additives. Whole, natural real foods are vital to good health. Here is the Foundation’s brochure on How to Prevent Cancer with Food.

5. Build your immune system with raw dairy products, especially cultured dairy like yogurt, buttermilk, kefir. Raw milk creates new blood and builds your immune system, strengthens your organs. Grass-fed faw butter is full of CLA. Learn more about raw milk and the health benefits at realmilk.com.

6. Maintain a healthy weight through diet and  exercise.

7. Do what ever it takes to reduce your stress levels.

8. Drink a cup of Sir Jason Winters Tea or Beet Kvass daily to cleanse your blood.

9. Have a daily dose of Vitamin B-17, found in apple & apricot seeds, millet and other foods.

10. Avoid immuno-suppressant drugs like statins. Minimize pharmaceutical drug use and move toward natural remedies and cures.

  1. I was very disappointed when I reached the end of The South Beach Diet where Dr. Agatston recommended everyone be put on statins. That recommendation was enough to get my brother-in-law to throw out the baby with the bathwater.

    The best advice my Mom gave me when she was diagnosed with breast cancer was, “Figure out what you would do if you were diagnosed with cancer and do that now.” I’ve heard it several times in the last couple years, so I am taking that advice. My biggest changes have involved not putting money above health by choosing the cheapest foods available; learning all I can about how nutrition affects my body; and spending more time focusing on what I love in life than what I fear.

  2. I had no idea that millet was a source of B17! I’ve bee trying to munch a few apricot kernels and cherry seeds more regularly.

  3. Couple of things: Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes does a pretty convincing job of showing how most of our chronic diseases, including cancer, are very much tied to overeating refined carbohydrates and the resulting hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance. So yes “diet and exercise” but the critical thing to understand is that it MUST be a nutrient-dense traditional diet that restricts refined carbs.

    Secondly, I really appreciated Nicholas Gonzalez’ talk at the Wise Traditions conference about the use of pancreatic enzymes for cancer. He is having great success treating cancer patients. His theory is that much cancer happens when the stem cells present in every organ proliferate out of control. They are supposed to make undifferentiated cells from time to time for organ repair, but sometimes this process doesn’t get stopped when it should, because the pancreas isn’t functioning to make the enzymes that “turn off” the stem cells in every organ. It’s helpful to think this way, of natural processes going awry and natural therapies getting the body back on track, rather than always “waging a war” against cancer with radiation and chemo and surgery, as if the cancer cells were invaders from outside rather than part of our bodies.

    His lecture can be ordered from Convention Recorders, http://www.conventionrecorders.com/, and he’ll be speaking again this November on cancer therapies (http://www.westonaprice.org/conferences/2009/index.html).

    I would suggest anyone facing cancer to look into the Gerson Therapy. It is an alternative treatment although it’s not accepted as a therapy in the US. Implementing it fully may be hard, but some of the principles like juicing is easily implemented. Cancer survives poorly in an alkaline environment and raw veggy juices are very alkalizing for the blood not to mention full of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.

  5. I am very interested.Thanks for this great post - I will be sure to check out your blog more often.Just subscriped to your RSS feed….

  6. I would add that exercise is important in other ways than promoting weight loss when preventing or healing cancer. The book AntiCancer: A New Way of Life presents an overview of medical studies that have shown results in natural ways of preventing and healing cancer, and describes some of the ways that exercise works.

  8. Cancer can be prevented given the right methods for doing so. Supplements that promise doing such may look attractive but in reality, it’s the natural approach that will always be the most effective.

  9. Thanks for this article. If you want to help prevent cancer, one thing I always recommend is to eat organically. There are any number of chemicals in the food we eat everyday that are linked to cancer. If you eat organic foods I guarantee that you will be reduce your risk of cancer.
